ARCHIVAL TAPE EDITION

A REVOLUTION IN RECORD PRODUCTION

In an exclusive collaboration with Universal Music Austria and Deutsche Grammophon, Supersense is launching a high-end record to put music lovers into the audio engineer's seat: the Mastercut Edition.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN RECORD HISTORY DIRECTLY CUT LACQUER DISCS ARE AVAILABLE TO MUSIC LOVERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD

In the conventional record production process, the term "Mastercut" refers to a template disc from which the pressing stamper is derived and which is destroyed in that process. But in these editions, each and every record is the original Mastercut, hand-cut into a lacquer disc, directly from completely unedited 1:1 copies of original tapes.

For this project, Universal Music Group provided access to its archives containing the greatest recordings from over a century of music history. Every single Edition is handcrafted in the Viennese Supersense manufactory by a small team of experts in the fields of record cutting, traditional printing methods and packaging design.
